Home-bred smartphone-maker Micromax has launched a new feature-rich budget handset dubbed as Canvas Xpress 2 in India on Monday, 27 Juy.
The new Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 sports 5.0-inch HD display and runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS out-of-the-box.
Under the hood, it houses a MediaTek Octa-core CPU backed by 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory and a 2,500mAh battery, which can run the phone for close to 393 hours under standby mode.
It also boasts 13mp camera with dual-LED flash, auto-focus and a 2mp snapper on the front.
Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 price and release details:
The company has reportedly confirmed that the new Micromax Canvas Xpress 2 will be sold exclusively on Flipkart for just ₹5,999. It will be retailed via flash sale on 3 August and the registration window has been opened on Flipkart starting on Monday (27 July) evening at 6pm.
